It must have been weird to go back to 'normal hearing', after several hours wearing those ?

stereo mic used in SD mixpre 3M


Interesting to read this tread.. I recently upgraded from a Tascan DR40 to a Mixpre-3m using my Sennheiser MKH416. The problem I encounter is that I don't understand that when I look at my recording in Audacity I see two recordings , both in mono. One has all the sounds, the other one is the same size but there is no sound. Even Though the 416 is a stereo-mic..

With my former field recorder (Tascam DR40) I always got a stereo recording.. So 1 file and Audacity showed me a two channel stereorecording.

So, if anyone of you knows how to set my mixpre so that the recording is in stereo that would be great. Can't find it in the manual..

Hope I made my self clear... English is not my first language..

Bye for now,

No, it's not. (The MKH *418-S* is a Mid-Side stereo mic.)

If you want the single, mono, 416 signal duplicated on the L and R tracks, pan its input to the centre.

Otherwise, record a single mono track, and duplicate it in post as you desire.

You are recording in mono, not stereo.

The BP4025 is a great mic for field recording. I bought one last year and have been very pleased with the results from it. It does have a tendency to make kinda sound wider with more distant sounds. A BBG is perfect for it. I haven't bought one yet but I made a "cage" for it out of a light bulb cover from Lowe's for around $2.50. I have a spandex wig cap for light winds and a emptied out a furry pillow for a windjammer. Much bigger than a BBG but it works.
